jmgreenuk (6957) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle from the Koelschip, Copenhagen, courtesy of FX. Poured a hazy reddish pink with a thin broken off white head. The aroma is big acid citrus, red berry fruit, yeast, mineral. The flavour is moderate sour with a smooth, flavourful, fruity yeast acid vinous palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Super smooth and lots of fruit. A big funky lambic.

Cool_Bond (2209) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2016
The aroma of cherries and red currants. The taste is quite similar. Quite right amount of flavor. Good bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. It becomes more acidic to end. But good anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

GrumpyOldTroll (59) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2016
One of the best Cantillons. Deep purple with moderate head. The nose is dense grape aroma with wood and dark fruit. Mouth feel is heavier than most lambics and it is very complex.

Ambro206 (350) - ITALY - APR 30, 2016
Birra acida maestosa. Aromi di vino, uva e fragole. In bocca é ben bilanciata con una punta di acido lattico e di salato che fanno contrappunto alla caratteristica acidità.

Kauge (1324) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 13, 2016
Bottle shared by Rask0lnikov, thanks a lot! Bottled 28.10.2015. Beautiful purple-red colour, bright. Horseblanket and manure, sweet dark grapes and bitterish grape skin, wood, red wine, apples and cherries. Acidic, tart, fruty, dusty and woody dry. Apple vinegar or balsamic acid in the throat. Mellow crispness, yet somewhat sticky. I really appreciate this, and I’m glad I got to try it, but I’m not falling in love. Perhaps because of the dryness and acidity - and yea I know it’s supposed to be like this. It is very good still, and I’d love to try it again one day.

Marduk (5380) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
750ml (thanks Raskolnikov). Clear ruby red color. Burnt rubber, acidic, faint leather, grape must and faint acetone in aroma. Sour, red grape skins, sweetish, fruity, bit of sweet cherries in taste. Sharp and yet mellow. Nice balance. I like it.
